Having problems with your Olympus FE-230 Digital Camera ?

Olympus FE-230 Digital Camera Jammed

\015 I dropped my camera when it was on a few months ago, and the lens side that it fell first got stuck half way inside and the other half is out. Everytime i try to turn it on,a red light flashes and the lenses try to go in, but it won't bcause it's jammed. I thought that maybe i could push it in, but 'm afraid that it'll break or something. Hellpp!!!!\015

Answers :

I got my camera fixed a day after posting the same problem. I called the manufacturer (my warranty is 3 months over the 1 year coverage) and a couple repairman , the repair charge will cost between $50 - $90...I said I'd be better off buying a new one. With that thinking, I figure it won't hurt it for me to push the lens back as hard but careful as I could, while twisting/wiggling the lens at the same time...Praise the Lord! It worked . It's operating as good as before.
Turn on camera, makes grinding-type noise, then lens goes in and out\015\012several times...try to put your camera in a table lcd side down and\015\012turn it on...while lightly tapping on the sides of the lens. also try\015\012to check out this link

Olympus FE170 digital camera shows battery compartment empty with batteries in place I have the same problem. When I place fully recharged batteries in the Olympus FE 170, the camera won't power on at all. When I first did this, it would power on once and then when I went to take a picture it said the battery was too low. If I put new disposable batteries in camera it works. Camera is only 1 year old and barely used.


On rechargeable batteries, check the mAh on the side, you would need to be about 2300 or more. also the shelf life on some rechargeables may be less than desireable... try lithium digital ... Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera
